SNL Construction Inc. has been owned and operated locally in Fauquier County since 1995. Original owner, Sean Ladue, made it his mission early on to ensure that quality was always the priority in every project, no matter the size. While SNL’s initial projects were rooted in Fauquier County, exemplary craftsmanship quickly took the business to D.C. for historic restorations.
Current owner, Jason Atkins, came to the company in 1998 with little carpentry experience, but prepared and eager to learn. Under Sean's mentorship, Jason learned best practices in carpentry and quickly became an integral component of the SNL team. After leaving the company to pursue other opportunities in 2003, Jason returned to SNL in 2012 and assumed ownership of the business in 2014. Jason continues to value and honor SNL's roots in quality, prioritizing craftsmanship over speed. With Jason at the helm of SNL, several homes have been completed from the ground up, countless additions and remodels have been delivered, and the company continues to work on historic restorations in Fauquier County. The unparalleled commitment to detail and quality has most projects coming to SNL by word of mouth alone. Jason and the entire SNL team look to the future excited for new opportunities and ready to take on your project!

Born and raised in Fauquier County, Jason grew up working alongside his parents, who managed and owned farms in and around the area. He had early and formidable experiences with his father including a myriad of activities-- running equipment, building fences, repairing buildings and assisting in the care of horses and livestock. The combination of Jason’s native upbringing and genuine curiosity affords him a unique perspective, viewing each project through the lenses of history and innovation.
